Deep Dive on Scholarship, Discovery and Innovation

The second of the Deep Dive sessions as described in the What’s Next? summary from the January retreat is on Scholarship, Discovery and Innovation and is being developed in collaboration with Beth Sandore Namachchivaya, Associate University Librarian for Research. This session will be focused on the campus strategic plan goals related to research and inquiry and the Library’s engagement with these areas. We will have two campus speakers joining us to set the context for our discussion: George Chacko (Director of Research Information Analytics, Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research) and Antoinette Burton (Interim Head of Sociology and, starting July 1, Interim Director of Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities).
